The Family Law Centre in Ebonyi on Friday, advocated more opportunities and support system, devoid of any form of marginalisation, for women.
The Chairperson of the centre, Mrs Elizabeth Nwali, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abakaliki, on the sideline of this year International Women’s Day.
According to her, addressing and building support for women, without division, will advance women into full development potential.
The International Women’s Day is marked on March 8 to recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and to accelerate gender parity.
The theme for 2019’s celebration is: “Think Equal, Build Smart, Innovate for Change.”
Nwali said that the continuous recognition of women’s participation in politics, economic issues and other endeavours required that action be taken for equality.
“If more empowerment of women becomes a central feature of any society, there will be gender balance and different ideas, especially in the area of politics.
“Women in their nature have more humble spirit; fear God, conscious of promises, honest and vibrant in the issue of politics.
“Women have shown greater resolve in peace building and ending discrimination against them.
“It must be central to rectify barriers and advance their full potential in our society,” Nwali said.
